The Dwarf Orange Bulborb (テンコチャッピー) is an enemy in Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 3. This enemy mimics the Orange Bulborb and has the same edginess, noticing Pikmin at a much greater distance than other Dwarf Bulborbs. It can still be easily defeated by the swarming or using the simple methods of defeating Dwarf Bulborbs like the other Bulborb-mimicking Breadbugs.
"Just as dwarf red bulborbs mimic the appearance of red bulborbs, it was theorized than an orange bulborb-mimicking variant must also exist. Recent fieldwork has confirmed this theory."
"Although difficult to prepare, this exquisite creature is more than worth the effort. Great in fajitas!"
Nintendo Player's Guide
"Found in underground areas only, Dwarf Orange Bulborbs are little eating machines, and they're never far from an orange Bulborb. If you can seperate the creatures, you can swarm them or stomp them fairly easily-but if you have to take them on in groups, you'll be in for quite a battle."
Pikmin 3 Prima Guide
"Dwarf Orange Bulborbs aren’t nearly as durable as their as their fully grown counterparts. Toss a single Pikmin onto a Dwarf Bulborb’s back to quickly defeat this enemy."
- In the Piklopedia, if you petrify the Dwarf Orange Bulborb, it may eat Pikpik Carrots at a faster rate.
